Abstract:

Homestead Living takes us to the remote reaches of Turtle Island, a natural preserve that Eustace Conway founded to experience the complete immersion of nature that kept eluding him as he was growing up. Living without the conveniences of instant meals and pre-made tools, and he has dedicated his time and his farm to teach others how to do the same. He introduces people to activities that are part of his everyday life: building a shelter, blacksmithing, raising horses and gardening taking them back to a time before refrigerators were even a concept and department stores were unavailable.

"The Fiddle explores this musical heritage by examining the different styles of fiddle playing. Unlike guitar-picking styles, which branch from two main types, fiddle playing styles can differ dramatically from one musician to another. David Holt introduces four fiddlers who have created their own styles either from picking up the musical tradition of the region, differentiating from a basic style or combining the styles of several different musicians."
